This cracks me up. The first two emails I got about our new site design, about five minutes apart, were these:

  • Reader #1: God that is really ugly.
  • Reader #2: I love your new artwork! Kudos to the graphic designer!

I like the new design myself, though I’ll confess that the logo is…very large and orange. That said, does anyone want to help me guess what the graphic elements are supposed to mean? There are eight:

  1. Microphone
  2. Two arrows
  3. Map pin?
  4. Pencil
  5. Cat
  6. Speech bubble
  7. Outstretched hand
  8. Check mark

Half of these are pretty obvious. But what about 2, 3, 7, and 8?

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
